Metropolitano de Lisboa
Transportation: You would need to move around, right? Here is how.
When you arrive in Lisbon, its probably better to take a cab straight to your home, chart your required route (Most likely to the university and back around Lisbon). Ask your neighbours or google maps how to get to the nearest metro so you can request for a permanent bus/metro pass (This card is usually issued in form a card with your basic details). However you can make do with the temporary passes for a couple of days.
The metro station that issues the initial card is Marques de Pombal, however you can make subsequent renewals in any other station.
Initial Card: 12 Euros
Average Monthly Pass within Lisbon: 36.70 Euros (additional transportation means cost may vary)
BONUS FLASH: In order to get a discount on cards, provided you are 23 years “young”, you may get a declaration from your university and apply for a transportation pass that reduces your monthly fair charges.
Getting around Lisbon can also be accessible from your phone, all you need to do is download the Carris Application on Google play store. It helps you navigate in a “Timely” fashion. All bus tops and time of arrivals are on this App. Cool right…
